I've had better days. As I started on what was to be a 55-mile ride, I noticed that my front tire was flat. I fixed it and continued on my ride. After 13 miles, I don't know what I hit, but it totally destroyed my front derailleur and chain. 1.5 miles of walking later, i limped into my garage and called my LBS for a heads up that I needed a Campy 11-speed derailleur and a chain. Luckily, they had it in stock. After showering and logging on the net, I noticed that my Mac mouse and the computer itself was not functioning well. So, I scheduled an afternoon appointment with the Mac "Geniuses". Result: bike $659, Mac $256 (new mouse and battery). In spite of it all, we did well nutritionally and physically. So, it wasn't all a waste. HOOAAA!!
